  2. Kickass News: David Frum on How Trump Corrupts the American Republic

    David Frum, former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, discusses his new book

    TRUMPOCRACY: THE CORRUPTION OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC.  He documents how Trump and his administration is steadily damaging the tenets of American democracy, warns that Trump’s military generals could become a liability to the President, and how the Trump Administration’s buffoonery may be incompetence by design with an end game of subverting the rule of law and undermining our Democratic institutions. Plus, Frum throws cold water on the idea that Trump might be a useful idiot for Congressional Republicans, explains why a Democrat win in the 2018 midterms could drive Republicans even closer to Trump, and discusses Trump’s bizarre habit of picking fights with allies in his own party.

  5. The 30 Day No Alcohol Challenge W/ James Swanwick

    James Swanwick never thought of himself as an alcoholic, but he tells us why he quit drinking for 30 days how it changed every aspect of his life. He never went back to drinking again and now inspires others to take the 30 No Alcohol Challenge!

    Do you consider yourself a social drinker? Or do you label yourself as an alcoholic? Do you wonder if your drinking habits are keeping you from living up to your true potential?

    This episode provokes a lot of questions about terms like ‘sober’ and ‘alcoholic’ and how the world sees people labeled as such, but are words important at all as long as the goal of not drinking is achieved?

  7. #359: Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best of the Best

    Do you sometimes wish you had a cabinet of counselors you could go to for advice and insight on how to make life better and easier for yourself? 

    Well, my guest today created his own board of mighty mentors — a metaphorical round table of some of the most successful people in the world — and asked them all the same 11 questions on how to live a more fulfilling and productive life. And he wrote a book to share all the insights he learned with others.  

    His name is Tim Ferriss, and he’s an author and the host of the Tim Ferriss Podcast. In his latest book, "Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice From the Best in the World," Tim shares the answers he got to the 11 questions he posed to a diverse range of successful people like Steven Pressfield, Jocko Willink, Bear Grylls, and Greg Norman, among many others. In today’s episode, Tim shares insights from the people he interviewed on how to say no without feeling guilty or looking like a jerk, the books successful people frequently gift others, and what to do when you’re feeling overwhelmed, distracted, and just generally down.

  8. Lawfare/Adam Schiff: The role of Congress in protecting liberal democracy | Brookings Institution

    In recent months, historians, policymakers, and voters have grown concerned that liberal democracy is under attack in the United States and abroad. The possibility of Russian interference with the American electoral system, depictions of the media as “the enemy of the American people,” and ongoing conflict between the judicial and executive branches have led to questions about the stability of democratic norms, principles, and institutions in the United States. Meanwhile, the rise of populist nationalism and the undermining of the European Union have raised similar concerns in other democratic nations around the world.

    What can be done to protect liberal democracy domestically and internationally? What role should Congress play in repelling illiberalism—whether it come from Moscow or Fifth Avenue—and engaging civil society in that effort? How should its members think about discharging their constitutional duties during this period of uncertainty?

    On March 21, Governance Studies and Lawfare hosted Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, to provide his perspective in a major address.

    Following his remarks, Rep. Schiff discussed this landmark moment in U.S. history with Brookings experts and answered audience questions.
